"My brother just had to have macaroni and cheese every day," recalls Elsie Evans, Terre Haute, Indiana. "My mother created a yummy new dish out of the leftovers by reheating them mixed with canned tomatoes and chili powder."
My family prefers homemade macaroni and cheese over the kind you get out of the box. This recipe is an easy way to keep them happy. Whenever we have a family get-together, I bring this comforting dish. Its "from scratch" taste can't be beat.

I came up with the recipe for this creamy and satisfying macaroni and cheese, which has a special twist. My husband requests it often - it's hearty enough to serve as a main dish.

A friend passed this recipe on to me and I made some changes that created this definite crowd pleaser. I make it for every family get-together and I haven't found anyone, child or adult, who doesn't love this ooey, gooey macaroni and cheese. —Sabrina DeWitt, Cumberland, Maryland
